Jarl the Bear
Player: TyrannoStorm
Race: Human
Class: Druid 9
Alignment: True Neutral

Appearance: Ranel wears a flowing emerald green cloak with a hood. His face is covered in light stubble, and his default expression is frowning. His sharp eyes focus intently on whatever holds his attention.

Personality: Ranel may seem to be selfish and materialistic, but he doesn't care for the gold he receives either, simply seeing it as a means to an end. He is dismissive of anything that doesn't hold his interest, but takes note of everything he sees or hears and will pursue what does with all of his resources. He dislikes being idle, and those who disrespect him. He is usually sarcastically insulting, but may sometimes be bluntly insulting. He genuinely likes animals and the forest, though he rarely shows it.

Background: Ranel was raised in a nomadic clan of druids, rangers, and fey. As children were taught and raised communally, he never knew his parents, though he surely met them. When he was old enough, he was apprenticed to an old druid named Morn. Morn was stern, cold, and ruthless, and forced Ranel to be the same to prevent being crushed physically or emotionally. Ranel hated Morn's teachings and held no emotional attachment to the rest of the clan, so he tried to leave soon after he turned 18. Morn stopped him, and nearly killed him for his "betrayal", but then did perhaps the kindest act of his life; he spared Ranel's life, telling him to never return. Ranel isn't planning on it.
